The Humanities Institute, a research division within the LuEsther T. Mertz Library of The New York Botanical Garden, stimulates interdisciplinary studies at the intersection of science and the humanities. Generously supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Institute is a forum for innovative thinking that brings together scholarship related to nature, landscape, and the built environment. Through fellowships, academic events, and public programs, the Institute formalizes The New York Botanical Garden's academic role among universities, museums, and libraries worldwide.
